NASCAR legend Richard Petty helps restore former Gator Tim Tebow's college car



Former Florida QB and Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow has hired NASCAR Hall of Famer Richard Petty to restore the 1995 Ford Thunderbird he drove in college. 

The car has been parked at Tebow's parent's home in Florida for three years since he was drafted into the NFL. Now he wants to restore it so it can be sold to benefit the Tim Tebow Foundation.
